Find out today if your business should have workers compensation insurance and obtain the right policy for your situation.
If you have a business in North Carolina, there are requirements for employers related to having workers compensation insurance. It is a common misconception that sole proprietors and other small businesses are exempt from having this coverage, but the reality is that, if you employ three or more people, or even just one in certain situations, you need to obtain it unless you fall under the umbrella of a few select exceptions. If you aren’t sure whether you need it, the best advice is to reach out to us at Legacy Insurance Partners. We can walk you through the process of determining if you need workers compensation insurance and, if necessary or desired, match you with the best coverage for your situation.
It is important to note that failure to carry workers compensation insurance, if you are required to have it in accordance with the North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act, can result in serious financial penalties, as well as the potential to be charged with a misdemeanor or even a felony, either of which could result in imprisonment. Even if you are not required to have this coverage, it is highly recommended so you do not keep the liability on your own shoulders should an employee be injured or killed.
